EuMW, Paris

22-27 September

This year, EuMW returns to Paris. Pre-COVID, this proved a popular exhibitor space for the show with lots of reader interest. Whilst the conference is the main draw, the exhibitors have a lot to offer attendees and the show provides a productive space for networking. In 2024, EuMW expect to welcome 4,000 attendees and 1,500 conference delegates.


Electronica, Munich

12-15 November

electronica is certainly on the list. Held every alternate year, it is a behemoth of an event with 69,783 attendees and 2,140 exhibitors and its almost impossible to squeeze all the meetings you need to into a single week, but goodness do the attendees really try! If you mean business you would do well to be seen at electronica. Described as the ‘party’ of the industry, there’s lots of after-parties and dinners to attend to make sure every hour in Munich is used to the fullest. 

Other events not going ahead this year but will be on our radar for 2025 again, Elektronik in Gothenburg as well as Electronics & Applications in Utrecht. Also, Productronica & Semicon in Munich in November 2025. If you have other shows, or further comments to add for this list, please get in touch with our Marketing Director at
